The Shu Uemura Christmas ’13 collection and like you said, the MAC Aqua one.
I really liked Urban Decay’s packaging for their Shattered Face Palettes. It was everything you needed when you were on the go. I liked that it was sturdy/bulky as well, the heft made it feel nice.
Also, anything from Guerlain is usually good. XD
Guerlain’s Wulong pressed powder compact is the most beautiful I have ever seen! its very bulkt but oh so pretty!
I really loved the packaging of the MAC x Proenza Schouler collection. I also loved the MAC Archie’s Girls packaging! I am really really excited to see the Alluring Aquatic packaging in real life though. All the photos I’ve seen look so stunning! I don’t even really have any items from that collection topping my wishlist but I know I’m going to buy something because of the packaging alone!
I agree with you. MAC’s Alluring Aquatic Collection has the best I’ve seen so far. Second is probably YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks and third would be Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette.
I really liked the Nars Andy Warhol packages and the powder designs of the flowers & self portrait eye shadows. It’s too bad the product was terrible for a lot of the stuff.
The Sephora Cinderella compact! So beautiful.
The wizard of oz palettes from Urban Decay are my personal favorites!
YSL’s Rogue Volupte lipsticks are THE most beautiful packaging I’ve seen. Just gorgeous and luxe-looking as well as practical. As for special edition packaging, I haven’t been around for most of MAC’s collections, but from what I’ve seen from Alluring Aquatics so far…I can’t WAIT to get my hands on it. Aqua is my favorite color, so the gorgeous metallic casing is pretty enough, but then the water drop effects…can’t wait til I can buy it!
The Alluring Aquatics sticks out. All the Disney Sephora packaging was just beautiful. Especially the quads. I’m still hoping that they’re renew the contract. 😉
Same here. I wish they’d do a Mulan inspired collection.
Hands down, the best ever packaging, so wonderful that I still cannot bring myself to use it, is the DIOR FLOWER BLOSSOM Poudres Florales Illuminatrices Visage! ( Floral Illuminating Powders For Face) 😀
This was a Limited Edition launch, and I’m referring to the print of the product/pattern on the powder! I’m sorry I forgot to include that! 😀 <3 xo!
Packaging of Guerlain and the patterns of Chanel limited edition beauty powders and highlighters.
Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick! Such a beauty.
Agree!! Those water droplets.. i WANT them so bad!!! ahah
So many. Urban 15 anniversary shadow palette, naked 1 palette, dior 2013 holiday powder compact, wu long meteriorites….and by the way, Christine, Harrods is having a 10 percent off this weekend… Entire online …you can buy those items we don’t get in the u.s,
Totally agree with you! I am in love with the MAC Alluring Aquatic packaging.
Two come to mind….from MAC’s Tartan Tales collection, the little “box” containing 3 blushes (I just wish the blushes themselves were better but the packaging was ingenious and I wish they’d use it more often for something like a shadow and blush combo) and from TheBalm, the Balmbini palette which managed to combine SO MANY products in a small, flat package and in such a way as to keep the powder from getting into the cream products AND there’s a nice big mirror too. It’s cardboard, which I’m not wild about but still so well designed that I can overlook that one “flaw”.
I love the packaging in the last summer MAC Temperature Rising collection . Elegant and gourgeous.
Oh, and I LoveLoveLove the Clarins Splendours Summer Bronzing Compact. Both packaging and pattern on this powder are stunning!!!
I love Chanel’s Rouge Allure where you press on the golden Chanel logo and the lipstick bullet pops out! I also really want to try a Guerlain lipstick because their packaging is legen..[wait for it] DARY.
Guerlain eyeshadow palette Écrin 6 couleurs with it’s arabesques ajourés, it’s for me the most gorgeous packaging ever. It’s a jewel ❤

My favorite packaging is my lipstick by ArtDeco from the “Dita von Teese Classics” LE. The color is “Maitresse 628” There were more lipsticks available,but the 628 is the only lipstick I own from this LE. The packaging is beautiful. It is black with pinstripes and a stylized white picture of Dita and a white “Dita von Teese” lettering on it.
YSL lipsticks. Their packaging is everything I would expect from a high end brand.
YSL lipstick packaging is too cute. i can’t get enough
Givenchy Le Rouge! Leather lipstick cases are hard to resist.
My all time favorite packaging has got to be from theBalm! It is girly and adorable!
YSL Parisian Night Collection, Tarte Off the Cuff Blush Palette from last holiday, Too Faced Bonjour Bronze Palette..
But my absolute favorite is Urban Decay 15th Anniversary Palette, such a GORGEOUS palette!
I was thinking the 15th Anniversary Palette too, but I just wish it would close securely for travel! It’s beautiful, but I have trouble with the practicality of it.
You´re right. The packaging is amazing but sucks for travel.
I almost forget..Kat Von D. Lock it Foundation is beautiful too.
I also agree with MAC Alluring Aquatic – that was the first collection to come to mind!
UD Alice in Wonderland e/s palette.
I agree! I also liked MAC’s barbie collection.
MAC Liberty of London is my all time favourite I think.
While I’ve never tried any of her products, I’ve always found Anna Sui’s packaging super adorable!
I have some of her makeup. I have to agree, her stuff is super pretty. It’s not overly froofy but it’s still feminine and chic.
I think the best packaging is the Disney Mac Venomous Villans Collection or the Disney Makeup Lipgloss collection. I;m a disney freak so those will always be my favorites 🙂
I feel like I’m the only one who doesn’t like the Alluring Aqua packaging! I dig the teal chrome, but the permanent water bubbles just makes everything look so cheap and sweaty to me.
I actually dug the oil spill Proenza Schouler x MAC packaging a lot though, even if it felt a little Lisa Frank…
I really love the packaging of these: Chanel Rouge Allure, Guerlain Rouge G, Tom Ford Cheek Color and Lip Color. 😀
I love Guerlain’s Cruel Gardenia powder, Paul & Joe’s cat blush sticks, YSL’s Rouge Voluptes…
I loved MAC’s Liberty of London and Hello Kitty packaging and the pattern of Marine Life – so pretty! I also love Guerlain’s Wulong – the combination of colors is lovely to look at and the compact is so luxurious and beautiful!
I have always liked the Chanel packaging – classic.
I really like the lime crime pakaging. It’s so bright and girly. I love it!

Oh so much beautiful packaging! UD BOS IV, Murakami x Shu, Mika for Shu, MAC Archie, Venomous Villains, Summer 2013, Proenza Schouler & Alluring Aquatics. For the whole line Guerlain,Tarina Tarantino, Kat Von D & Anna Sui.
I like a lot the Guerlain Terracotta Khol “thingy”. It is a jewel in itself……. Also everything The Balm does, and the Physician Formula blushes….those with little hearts, For skincare Sarah Chapman Skinesis line is just perfection.. Ah and love the little Christmas tree baubles that This Works or Aromatherapy Associates and others launch every year for the festive season, specially miniatures. And lets not get started with nail polishes. I sometimes buy the polish because of the packaging, like the Mavala ones with Angel Wings for Christmas.
I’m so in love with Ysl and Burberry lip product packaging.. I’ve just been really into sleek and luxury looking packaging not so much of the playful packaging..!!!
MAC Archie’s girls and MAC Venemous Villians, also I love the packaging of a MAC’s summer collections!!
The Paul and Joe packaging is the cutest I’ve ever seen. Aside from that I like lightweight containers like theBalm and Pop Beauty. Cardboard with a magnetic closure.
Yes! Beautiful. Even the Nail polish remover Flask is pure art! I refrained myself and didn’ buy it because is abut 6-7 times the price of a plain one…but every time I see it in Selfridges I actually have to look at it.
My favourite so far has been the UD Vice Palette for looks, and the Naked Basics for compactness and convenience and I also love the Inglot packaging.
The best packaging I have come across is the Guerlain packaging for their eyeshadow palettes. Really pretty.
Benefit, TheBalm, Tarte and Kat Von D are the packaging princesses! The look, the feel and the colors
just ticks all the boxes for me! :))
The Asian brand laduree they have these beautiful blushes. It’s come in a container the blush are rose petals. The most beautiful of any makeup packing I’ve ever seen
For me it would be the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette packaging, since I love chocolate so much and the product itself as well 😛
My favorite is Paul & Joe Carousel collection. I got the galaxy looking swirl CS powder, eyeshadow and lipstick with carousel print. The container is also very cute with elephants and cat prints. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Can’t believe I spent so much on make up that I won’t use but I don’t regret it. I regret not purchasing the Shu Uemura x Tsumori Chisato collection because it is so cute. Laduree Japan has some very exquisite and expensive make up as well that I wish I could afford. Jill Stuart has cute & princessy packaging too.
Ysl Rouge Volupte!!! THE BEST. classy and sophisticated
To this day, it is still Mac + Marcel Wanders’ 1st collaboration back in 2010/2011! Do you remember that Christine? 🙂 Close second is Guerlain’s limited edition Meteorites compacts.
Mac Making Pretty is my all time favorite packaging!!!
TokyoMilk’s Bon Bon Lip Balm. The packaging is so beautiful I refuse to throw it out. Inside the little boxes are little paper pamphlets called “The Art of Kissing” and they have kissing tips and best movie kisses.. Plus the lip balm is awesome and affordable. I want to get every flavor! You should check it out. Sooo adorable.
